The Best Shift Planner I've used
I work a very complicated shift pattern and have used several different shift apps prior to finding MyShiftPlanner. For me the app is perfect, personalising the shifts I work and then just adding them to the calender a year in advance.
I'm not using the app to it's full potential bit will be looking at utilising some of the additional features that have been added in updates.
Straight forward and clear. No other shift app meets my needs as much as this.
When my wife asks what I'm working several months in advance, I can just WhatsApp her an image of my schedule. When my shifts are changed at short notice, I can alter them in the app within seconds.
Whilst using the app, I have trialled similar that promise more features than MyShiftPlanner but I've found that they are either over complicated to use of don't deliver on their promises.
Very good in the main
The planner is customisable in that you can choose colours and hours. Annual leave can show the underlying shift which is a good feature when you have a complicated shift pattern. My family have access to the planner on their devices so I am not constantly asked “what are you working on.....”
I also use the planner as a diary for any variations in shifts and overtime record keeping so I know I have been paid correctly. I need to keep a long term record of this and this is where I have found a problem-
The planner is able to populate the shifts automatically. You enter one full pattern and the planner will populate that pattern into the future. This is great, but it also populates the planner into the past. I have changed my pattern twice since using it and the first time I changed it overwrote all my history with the new pattern which caused me an issue. I now have to populate the planner manually in order to retain the history. This is very time consuming.
My suggestion is that there is an option to populate the planner into the future, leaving the history as it is.
But for this very annoying issue, this is a five star app.
I’ve looked a quite a few other shift planners, and even tried a different one, but with my complex shift pattern no other app even comes close to being as good as this, in my opinion anyway. It does everything you would ever need, including syncing between my devices and sharing with others, so planning ahead is so much easier now. Dealing with shift changes, adding holidays etc is a doddle and the customer support is second to none! I contacted customer support a few times, not for any problem I had - I was just seeking advice - and got a reply within hours. Don’t look beyond this app. I would definitely making the one-off payment to get the Pro features, but even the free version is amazing.
